Mtazamo Group's story

Mary N., who is in her early thirties, is single and has a two-year-old daughter. She has been running a pharmacy since 2006. She works from 7am to 9pm daily and makes a small monthly profit.

This will be Mary's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With it, she will buy more medicines. Her dream is to one day build her own house as she already has the land.

Mary will share this loan with her loan group "Mtazamo" which has 15 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
